This commisioned piece was made out of forest reclaimed juniper from out mountains here in NM. It was approximately 20” T x 18” L x 7” W. It was created first with a chainsaw and then grinders were used to finish the shaping. Turquoise was inlayed into the natural cracks and voids. This piece was placed on a hall table under a beautiful Indian painting. Our canyon vessels have gotten popular since they can be placed in just about any spot. Each one is a true one of a kind collectors piece.
